Bel Ormeau

Les Herits Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: France

Region: Bordeaux

Grapes: 80% Merlot; 10% Cabernet Franc; 5%  Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Malbec

Winery Tasting Note: Strong wood-ageing flavors dominate this young wine. These are backed by rich black fruits and fine, stylish tannins. With its acidity, structure and firm backdrop, the wine will age well. This one of three cuvees from Bel Ormeau. Dark color with purple-blue  tints. Pleasant fruity nose with spicy and roasted  coffee notes. Expressive attack on the palate. A  pleasant and easy to drink Bordeaux wine.

Food Pairings: Grilled red and white meat and soft  cheese.

Wine Enthusiast: ”This rich, wood-aged wine is full of black fruits. Cocoa flavors are a strong presence in this wine along with the peppered plum and dense tannins. Drink this wine from 2022.”
